- Site of the Week
Kids Are Heroes® is a non-profit that empowers, encourages and inspires children to become leaders through volunteerism and community involvement. We do this by showcasing and supporting children who are making a difference through their selfless acts of giving. (site description)
This site is great—it’s simple to navigate around (for both kids and adults), and its real-life stories are endearing and inspiring. Plus, it even has word games!
At age 9, Erica started a charity making fleece blankets for hospitals. She now has her own logo and website, and has collected hundreds of dollars to keep her blanket-giving charity going.
Erica also makes homemade dog biscuits for her local animal shelter and shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.
What can you do?
Teachers: Once or twice a week, set aside 5-10 minutes to read an inspiring story. Or just simply explore the site with your students.
Thanks for turning us to this site, Mike!
